Review for Teen Lifeline Inc, Phoenix, AZ, USA
Teen Lifeline serves an important role in the Arizona community. In addition to the crisis hotline, they provide community outreach services for prevention, education, and postvention.
When a teen feels like they have no other options, TL gives them someone to talk to. The organization is one of only a handful in the country that has teen peer volunteers staffing a crisis hotline. The impact of this is tremendous as it allows Arizona teens to feel like they're talking with someone who relates to them, not "just an adult" who "doesn't understand" them.
Teen Lifeline is truly a special organization, providing invaluable experience to its volunteers and, even more importantly, saving the lives of Arizona teens on a regular basis.
